    Ottawa to Quebec City & Home Need Help``

    Hi Everyone

    Another summer of great riding is upon us): I am flying into Ottawa from Vancouver on June 10th with my bike, going to visit for a few days and head out on Monday June 14 for Quebec City via Montreal. I am going to give myself 7 days so I am not in a rush. My concern is how do I get my bike boxed up in QC for the flight home? I am concerned that tracking down a box could be a problem. Does anyone know where I could purchase a box in advance and pick it up when i get there. I don`t want to get stuck. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thx...Jim

    It's a little known secret that most people in Quebec City can actually speak English. It's a huge tourist town

    Hi,

    Call the people at Cyclo Services in Quebec City
    http://www.cycloservices.net/english.htm

    The shop is located in Old Quebec, just across from the train station. I'm sure they'll be able to help you.

    Also, for the itinerary from Ottawa to Quebec City, you may want to consider the route proposed by Steve Langdon at

    The Ottawa itinerary starts at Day 42 from Parliament Hill:

    Enjoy the trip,
